Default Is this the right tool for the job?

I'm new at networking and I want to start making my own network wires/cables for my office. I ordered this crimping tool from www.lducompany.com (crimper should be here in a few days) and I wanted to learn if there are any other kinds of network cat5 wire crimping tools out there that would work better? http://www.liangdianup.com/inventory/459901.htm is the location for the crimp plires on thier website, those are the ones that I bought. Funny that it says Germany on the handle of the plires but I would gues they are made in China since the company I bought them from is in China. If you know of a name of a certin cat 5 wire crimper that would be better for me to use then please post it here. Thank you

Crimpers are in engineering speak a very simple tool and they all do exactly the same job, I don't see you having any problems with that model an I wouldn't suggest any other would be any better, without physically testing it.

Might I also suggest since you are new to this, consider using CAT-5e cable as it is solid core and carries signals better than stranded, if you are using a 100Mbps switch you will thank me for the suggestion.
